What comes to mind when you think of New Jersey?

Endless highways stretching between major U.S. metropolitans or The Jersey Shore? Maybe you think of the mafia, a la The Sopranos. Or even Atlantic City and the gambling destination’s heyday.

Whatever your thoughts on New Jersey, unless you’ve spent a lot of time in the Garden State, it’s likely that you aren’t familiar with the abundance of natural beauty that New Jersey possesses.

Beyond all those highways and shore towns, New Jersey offers woodsy retreats, peaceful plots far from the city — and you can experience that side of Jersey for yourself, with a stay at one of these 10 awesome New Jersey cabin rentals.

Why you should stay here: Posh luxury with access to near-endless amenities.

  • Location: McAfee
  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $498/night

This luxury 10-guest cabin certainly doesn’t feel like a cabin — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Located within a resort, this two-story, stylishly-decorated home seems more like a luxurious city apartment than a cabin. However, it’s right near some of New Jersey’s most beautiful natural landscapes, so you can get your taste of nature, without leaving behind any of the luxury living amenities you crave.

For an additional fee, you can take advantage of all the resort’s extra perks, such as the pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, hot tubs and more. If you don’t want to pay, though, you can still take advantage of all the other things to enjoy and do in the area, including hiking, snow sports, mountain biking, horseback riding and more.
